UWC Dilijan College Thanks the Project’s Donors


In honor of the opening of UWC Dilijan College, the students of the school took part in the filming of a video in which they express their gratitude to the project’s patrons and donors.

The construction of the international boarding school UWC Dilijan College was supported by more than 200 donors from various countries. One of the philanthropists supporting the project was Chairman of RD Group Gagik Adibekyan.

Thanks to these generous people for the first time in post-Soviet space a school has begun operations that has been able to welcome 96 students from nearly 50 states – Armenia, Russia and other CIS countries, Europe and Asia, the Middle East and Africa, North and South America, and even Australia.


As reported earlier, RD Group performed three key roles in the project to develop the international boarding UWC Dilijan College: the asset management company RD became a co-investor in the project; the construction work was carried out by RD Group; and RD Management will fulfill the facility management role for the educational complex.


The international boarding school UWC Dilijan College in Armenia is a philanthropy project initiated and founded by the well-known businessman and philanthropist Ruben Vardanyan together with his wife Veronika Zonabend. The construction of the school is being supported by the government of Armenia and personally by President Serzh Sargsyan. UWC Dilijan College was built according to the designs of a leading London architecture bureau – Tim Flynn Architects.
